The International Interior Design Association (IIDA) hosted its 8th annual Sustainable Quilt Auction at the Herman Miller showroom in New York last week. The event brings together industry professionals and IIDA New York board members to celebrate craft, community, and the importance of sustainable practices.
The event exhibited the collaborative work of numerous design teams who worked together to create one-of-a-kind quilts from discarded materials from fabric showrooms, product libraries, and industry samples.
This year’s participating teams included Perkins+Will, Davis Brody Bond, Ted Moudis Associates, CallisonRTKL, C3Designs, Herman Miller, M Moser, and Spacesmith, among others.
The proceeds from the auction were donated to the local organization Publicolor, in support of its efforts to engage high-risk students academically, through a continuum of design-based programs that guide them towards success in college, career, and life.
